Michigan Criminal Defense Lawyer
While many criminal actions involve actual conduct, there does not need to be any physical harm or steps taken in order for a person to be charged. The threat of violence or committing a crime can be enough for a person to be taken into custody. A criminal threat is generally defined as making a credible threat of violence or injury to a person or to his or her family.
The purpose of the threat would be to terrorize the person, and to be charged an individual would have had to put the victim in real fear of his or her safety. Depending on the particular circumstances of the case, a person facing criminal threat allegations may be charged with a felony or a misdemeanor. Penalties may include time in state prison or county jail, fines, probation and more. The defendant may face a loss of employment, a ruined reputation and other similar consequences even after his or her sentence has been served. Many people say things in a moment of anger that they do not mean so the court will look to assess whether there was any intention or threat of danger.
